Neuman Attorney Asks Judge to Limit Media Coverage

Posted:

Lawyers for a man charged with murder in a slaying outside a Dunwoody preschool asked a judge to seal several motions from the media's scrutiny.

Hemy Neuman's attorneys asked Superior Judge Gregory Adams on Tuesday to allow them to shield the filings from the public because they could prejudice the jury pool. Neuman’s attorney says he’s not trying to ban the media from the proceedings altogether, but he wants to balance Neuman’s right to a fair trial with the media’s right to access in the case.

Media attorney Thomas Clyde argued that the request was unwarranted and unnecessary.

Adams did not immediately issue a ruling.

Neuman is charged with the November 2010 shooting death of Russell Sneiderman, who was killed minutes after he dropped off his 2-year-old son at the preschool in November. He has pleaded not guilty, and a judge has set his trial date for Oct. 17.

Neuman was the supervisor of Sneiderman's wife, Andrea, in GE Energy's quality and engineering department. Neuman’s wife has filed for divorce, claiming that her husband and Andrea Sniederman were having an affair.
